Tips

  • Use high-quality olive oil.
  • You can use any type of flour. For more, you can check our article "Types of Flour and Uses "
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. Take the egg, butter, and milk-based ingredients out of the refrigerator at least an hour before to bring them to room temperature. In this way, the cake will have an even texture. Otherwise, the cake batter may clump together.
  • Make sure you measure the ingredients correctly. You can use a kitchen scale or measuring cup for this.
  • Make sure you measure the flour correctly. Use a kitchen scale to measure your flour. But if you don't have a scale, stir your flour with a spoon. Then put them in cups and flatten them with a knife. Otherwise, too much flour will lead to a hard and dry cake.
  • Do not overmix the dough. Otherwise, the cake will be hard and dry.
  • Add ingredients like almonds or chopped olives to add texture and flavor to the cake.
  • Grease a cake pan or line it with parchment paper.
  • To check if the cake is cooked, do the toothpick test. If the toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, the cake is done.
  • Let the cake cool completely. Refrigerate the cake for at least 5 minutes before serving.
